13 Apr April Showers, May Flowers, and Flooded Basements
It’s true what they say. April showers really do bring beautiful May flowers, but they also bring flooded basements and a whole mess of problems. Unfortunately, we can’t completely prevent water from getting into your basement, but we can alert you to an issue sooner rather than later so you can significantly limit the amount of damage done.
If you’re like most people, you probably consider sump pumps to be handy devices that help keep water from overwhelming your basement; but, you probably don’t spend too much time thinking about them or making sure they work. We can’t say we blame you, after all “out of sight, out of mind”, but what happens if your sump pump suddenly stops working? That could be a recipe for disaster.
Luckily, we have a quick and easy solution that eliminates the vulnerability when it comes to “out of sight, out of mind” and your sump pump. By adding a water sensor and smart switch to your sump pump you can be instantly notified if it isn’t working the way it should. That type of immediate awareness allows you to correct the problem long before it causes lasting damage.
While the water sensor is monitoring the water level in the pump well, the smart switch monitors the pump’s power supply. Together these devices help diagnose the problem and alert you to an issue sooner. The solution can help you determine if your pump has just lost power, the pump itself is broken, or even if it’s working but not removing water quickly enough to prevent damage.
When the devices are triggered you’ll receive a real-time text notification from Alarm.com’s smart home security platform, alerting you to the issue so you can quickly get help if it’s needed.
